Sometimes in the afternoon, the warm, spring breeze carries in the light fragrance of jasmine and periwinkle and I am reminded of the old country. The young goats chewing grass on the side of the dirt roads and wild garlic growing in the shade. I grew up on a small, green island off the coast of Italy. A place where old people still walk hand in hand and the water is so clear that children dive from the docks and gather coins. I remember it as heaven, my favorite place on Earth.
As day would turn to night, my friends and I would crowd around Auntie Frita’s back stoop and wait for our fair helping of her famous chicken supper. Those small pieces of breaded chicken breast, when mixed with enough tomato sauce and pasta, could feed a whole soccer team. Now and forever, that recipe is here for you to enjoy.
We used Signature products in Aunt Frita’s breaded chicken. These quality products are exclusive to and carried by all 18 of the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including a soon-to-opened Safeway, in South Florida. We are looking forward to a quality customer experienced at an exceptional value.

Kitchen Hint: One person eats about 2 centimeters of pasta when held in the hand. Work forward from that depending on how many people you are feeding. Boil pasta with a drop of olive oil and a chicken bouillon cube.
You never forget the feeling of home. That place that smells like lightning bugs and cousins. It’s a place in your heart where your great aunt is always yelling at someone for not wiping off their feet and everyone smells like garlic.
